Jim Lampley (HBO) Gets Karma'd

For all of you who see me in the HBO threads talking about Jim Lampley:

Quote:
Longtime HBO Boxing play-by-play announcer Jim Lampley was arrested late last week and charged with domestic abuse. The 57-year-old Lampley now faces a felony charge of domestic abuse/corporal injury and two misdemeanor counts of violating a restraining order and dissuading a witness.

San Diego County Sheriff's Captain Glenn Revell told the Associated Press, "The circumstances are that there was an altercation between Mr. Lampley and a 28-year-old female with whom he reportedly has a dating relationship."

The woman in question is 28-year-old Candice Sanders, who won the Miss California USA pageant in 2003. Sanders alleges multiple cases of assault and further claimed that Lampley was drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana prior to the most recent incident, which was allegedly witnessed by Lampley's 14-year-old son.

Lampley was released from police custody after posting $35,000 in bail. Lampley's public relations representative, Howard Bragman, released a statement in which Lampley said, "I am innocent of the charge of domestic abuse that has been leveled against me and will vigorously defend myself. I'm confident that the process will prove that I'm not guilty of this charge. I thank my friends and family for their support during this difficult time, and ask for the understanding and patience from the media until my legal situation allows me to discuss this in more depth."

Lampley drew the ire of MMA fans last summer when he said on Jim Rome's radio show that UFC events are nothing more than bar fights and that MMA fighters are "not athletes." Lampley also said at the time that any of the top fighters from the UFC or K-1 would lose very quickly to a top boxer, and that the UFC "will never be bigger than boxing."

HBO has not yet made any public comment on Lampley's status as HBO Boxing's play-by-play announcer. The next HBO broadcast on which Lampley would be an announcer is scheduled for January 20th.
So that's why I don't like him anymore. I thought he was a cool guy until he said that any of the top fighters in boxing would beat UFC k-1 people. They would all die without their 14oz gloves. And the never bigger than boxing comment, whoops missed that boat. This domestic abuse thing on top of it all. Wow, talk about hardcore owned.

CroCop#1UFCfan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Lampley needs to shut his ****ing mouth. It's easy for a guy to talk shit about something he knows nothing about. I mean, the guy was never even a pro boxer himself, so he should have zero input on the situation. It's funny that a ***** that sits there and calls a fight, but has never fought himself(well unless u count women), *****es about MMA when there are actual professional boxers who attend and seem to enjoy MMA. He needs to just face the facts that the public is getting tired of seeing two know name fighters competing for a belt that was once held by guys such as Muhammed Ali, Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson and others. Honestly, ever since I have started watching MMA, I can't sit through a boxing match at all, because the take down is obviously not there and there is no ground game, which makes the fight boring after a while in my opinion. And now the face of HBO boxing has been exposed as an abusive, alcoholic, pot smoker. LOL, I'm sure that is going to bring in a lot more viewers Lampley..........way to go.

Really? Maybe we discussed this in another thread... because I can't STAND Merchant! He would be horrible in MMA, he is way too slow to keep up with a fight.

"Ya know.... sometimes.... Chuck Liddell is........ uh.... similar to a Roman..... pitbull..... in his instincts.... and" (Cut to Rogan) "Ok Larry the fight is over Chuck just KTFO'd him." (Merchant) "Ok, one final...... thought.... when I was a ...... kid." (Cut to Dana White) "Stop talking so motherf'ing long motherf'er, ****!"

Yeah, he's getting way old, but I still love the guy. During the oleg marskaev/ hasim Rahman fight he was yelling at the ref for the broadcast table. It was hillarious. But yeah, he used to be a little quicker on the draw back in the day. He's definitely a little slow now.
